ROAD TENNIS PLAYERS with disabilities have been promised their own tournament.
Citing the theme of this year’s World Road Tennis Championships, Road Tennis For Everyone, Minister of Sports Stephen Lashley says one of the major innovations is the introduction of road tennis for the physically challenged.
“Part of the focus in relation to the expansion of road tennis is to make road tennis available to our differently abled road tennis players. We have quite a number of persons who are highly skilled and poised in terms of development of road tennis, so we are in discussion with the various schools and relevant parties to have a special tournament next year for the differently abled,” he disclosed at a press launch for the championships held at his Sky Mall, Haggatt Hall offices yesterday.
